(The event is to tie in with their 'Game Plan - Board Games Rediscovered' exhibition which is running from 8th October 2016 - 23rd April 2017.)

The evening will have two strands:

1st strand: Publishers prototype showcase

Publishers will be showcasing a published game and it's original prototype, as inspired by Matt Leacock's original Pandemic prototype, which is featured in the exhibition.

The featured games and publishers are:
Tatsu by John Yianni, Ominoes by Andrew Harman, In a Bind by Behrooz Shahriari, Glimpse by Dr Mike Pambos and Safebreaker by Dave Cousins
2nd strand: Game Design Jam

Teams of games designers will try to design a game inspired by the Museum of Childhood and their new exhibition.

All game design materials will be provided, just bring your ideas and amazing creativity. There will be cool prizes.

  1. Rather hope i will be able to make this as sounds exceptional - and i'd been planning to discuss with the exhibition anyway. Have an concept for the game design jam which will have to fit in good with the exhibition.
